Top Five Greatest Monsters Marvel Created to Fight Godzilla

godzillamonsters5c

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

From 1977-79, Marvel did a Godzilla ongoing series. The series was popular, but after one year’s worth of stories, Toho charged Marvel more to renew the license for a second year. After that second year, they wanted an even larger increase in the license fee. The comic was no longer worth it so Marvel canceled it. As I detailed in a recent top five, Toho also wanted SEPARATE licensing fees if Marvel were to use any of their OTHER monsters, so Marvel had Godzilla fight Marvel heroes like the Fantastic Four, the Avengers and that bunch of lovable losers (well, losers, at least) the Champions. However, writer Doug Moench and artists Tom Sutton and Herb Trimpe also created BRAND-NEW monsters for Godzilla to fight. Here are the top five monsters Marvel created to fight Godzilla.

Top Five Greatest Godzilla Fights Against Marvel Heroes

Here is an archive of all the past top five lists I’ve one over the years.

For two years in the late 1970s, Marvel licensed the use of Godzilla for a comic book series. It was very popular, but soon became SO popular that Toho asked for a large license increase after the first year and an even larger increase after the second year and it just no longer made sense for Marvel fiscally, so they ended the series after 24 issues. For the most part, writer Doug Moench invented brand-new monsters for Godzilla to fight (as Toho required separate licensing fees for any of their other monsters) but throughout the series, SHIELD agents Dum Dum Dugan, Gabe Jones and Jimmy Woo pursued the monster and on occasion Godzilla faced off against Marvel heroes (including one created for the series). Here, then, are the five best fights between Marvel heroes and Godzilla!
